With tackle Stacy Andrews lost for the season with blood clots in both his lungs, the Giants got some veteran help on Wednesday when they signed veteran tackle Tony Ugoh.
The 6-5, 304-pound Ugoh was originally a second-round pick of the Indianapolis Colts out of Arkansas in 2007. He started 11 games at left tackle as a rookie and 12 games the following season, too. He was cut by the Colts in mid-September of last season and signed with the Lions two months later.
The Lions cut him in training camp this year.
Ugoh will almost certainly be a depth player along the Giants' offensive line, even with all their injuries which has forced a major reshuffling. The line they sent out on Sunday against the Packers -- with Kevin Boothe at center and Mitch Petrus at left guard -- will likely be their line again this Sunday night in Dallas, too.
That's because C David Baas is still undergoing tests for what the Giants are calling "intense headaches" -- though Tom Coughlin said today his condition is "much more serious than a headache." Coughlin declined to say much more about Baas' status, but his availability for this week definitely seems to be in doubt.
